I have a 97 Malibu Echelon (built for skiing) that we wakeboard behind. <BR> <BR>I just got a screamin' deal on an LF Skimskate 60". I dig the board, but have not been successful on "free-riding". <BR> <BR>Last weekend I had 6 (count 'em) 6 people in the boat and couldn't get it. I have "The Wedge" as well and just couldn't seem to get it. I would say my skill level is advanced (pretty good rider). I had everybody on the DS and it just wasn't working. <BR> <BR>Should I be concerned about the tank vent?? I ride goofy and have heard some horror stories. <BR> <BR>Any suggestions on weight? <BR> <BR>Contemplating a Fat-Sac, but have to run it by the wife. <BR> <BR>Thnx for all your help. <BR> <BR>

Be very concerned about the location of your fuel tank vent. If it is near the rear on the low side, you will likely get water it. I realized this problem when I found "mud" in my carburetor. It is best to locate the vent forward, at least abreast of the driver.
